Hi folks,

just a heads-up to let you know that I've put up a release candidate for 0.6.4 at:


This includes most importantly, fixes related to proper matplotlib support. 
There are also a fair amount of other minor changes.  CVS is currently in sync 
with this codebase.

I expect to actually put out a 0.6.5 release in a few weeks, because I'll be 
forced to change the @magic escape from @ to something else, due to the new 
@decorator syntax.

But while this is an easy change to make, it's also very time consuming as I 
need to track that thing down in a zillion places (yes, my bad: it's hardcoded 
in multiple locations, and the docs need fixing).  I also will solicit user 
feedback when selecting the new escape.

Since I don't want to delay these fixes (esp. the matplotlib support, which is 
coordinated with matplotlib 0.63), 0.6.4 will come out still using @.

Let me know of any problems you run into (or not).
